seniors

If you’re here, that means you’re preparing for one of the best years of your life! Girl, I’ve been exactly where you are- dreaming of a year full of fun with your besties, Friday night games, and that perfect Sherri Hill prom dress. During your senior year, you deserve all of the best experiences, including your senior portraits!

As a senior, I was so excited for my senior portraits, but I was SO nervous that I would look awkward and unnatural because I had never posed for photos before. Because of the amazing connection I had with my senior photographer, I felt 100% comfortable during my session and loved all of my photos (which is what makes me so excited to photograph so many seniors like you every year!)! 


My seniors call me their #1 Hype girl!

The unique connection I have with each of my senior girls is what allows me to create beautiful, fun-filled images that you just can’t wait to share on Instagram (and your mom can’t wait to print and hang all over your home)! From my favorite locations throughout Bourbonnais and Kankakee County to photographing seniors in different states, each senior gets a fully personalized experience with me!

Girl, I get it-finding the perfect senior photographer can seem like such a challenging task. The senior experience with me is completely designed around you. That's right, girl-it's all about you! Our time together is filled with everything from outfit planning guides to sessions jammed packed with your favorite music-I’m there for it all! My favorite part of it all? The All Inclusive Elle Taylor Experience includes professional hair and makeup appointments from the BEST girls around!

TEMPE, ARIZONA ANNIVESARY

"Elle made it SO easy for me to feel comfortable during my shoots, and it definitely shows in my senior pictures! No one else will make you feel as picture-perfect as she does! I loved that we could visit 3 locations, including my family farm and my school. I also got AMAZING hair and makeup done ahead of time, which made it every ounce more worth it!! I would highly recommend Elle for your senior pictures!! She's without a doubt the best!"

- Karlie

“No one will make you feel as picture-perfect as she does!”

My seniors HAVE THE KINDEST THINGS TO SAY

"There is no one more relatable & more comforting than Elle! I went into my senior pictures feeling self-conscious and unsure of how I would look in them, but I loved them so much! Elle knows how to make you feel comfortable, and she made me feel like a model during my session. She complimented me and made me laugh and smile the entire time! The thing that stands out about Elle compared to other photographers is that she will do anything to get the perfect picture, whether that be standing in the street or climbing on top of a rock. Plus, she will help you out with choosing your location and outfits, which is so helpful if you're indecisive like me! All around, Elle is an outstanding photographer, and she's very passionate about what she does! She's truly the best around!!"

- Lauren

“she made me feel like a model during my session”

THEY HAVE THE KINDEST THINGS TO SAY

"As I was trying to decide who was going to do my senior pictures, I knew Elle would be the perfect option. I actually heard of Elle through a friend, and I then saw the pictures she took on instagram. She does absolutely amazing work and is the sweetest ever!! Elle was so flexible with my sessions and knew the perfect spots to take my pictures. I would highly recommend Elle to take your senior pictures! She makes you feel comfortable during every session and pose. My favorite part was having the music play throughout the session and just laughing the entire time! You never have to worry about a pose because she will make you look natural the entire time!"


- Mady

“My favorite part was having the music play throughout the session and just laughing the entire time!”

THEY HAVE THE KINDEST THINGS TO SAY

"She will get in the most awkward positions, stand on chairs, and crawl into tall grass just to get the perfect angle for a great photo. She is super cooperative and caring with her senior. I have never seen someone more excited to take senior pictures, she was almost more excited than I was!! I totally recommend for every single senior to go to her for their senior pictures. Her work is extraordinary and you could not find anyone better to capture your moment!! My pictures turned out better than I ever believed, and she made all my flaws look like perfection. Literally could NOT find anyone better."

- Dana

“she made all my flaws look like perfection”

THEY HAVE THE KINDEST THINGS TO SAY

"Elle photographed my senior pictures during winter of my senior year. Elle was absolutely amazing!!! Throughout the entire session she made me feel confident, it was never awkward, and all the positions she had me doing were very detailed which shows how much she cares/love what she does. Going into my senior pictures I really had no idea how anything was going to go but Elle walked me through each step and was reassuring throughout the whole session. I would recommend Elle to anybody, my pictures turned out exactly as I hoped and her work is always so beautiful."

- Maddie

“She made me feel confident, it was never awkward”

THEY HAVE THE KINDEST THINGS TO SAY

"WOW!!! Elle is top notch. She brings the energy to the shoot and takes amazing photos on top of that. 5 STARS hands down. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a professional senior photographer with great personality. Really makes taking photos FUN and captures the personality of the seniors she is photographing!!!" 

- Heather, Senior mom

“WOW!!! Elle is top notch”
